We are enthusiastic about our continued progress in delivering the next generation of advanced methods for evaluating pharmaceutical cardiac safety
Rochester, New York (PRWEB) July 6, 2009
iCardiac Technologies, Inc., a leader in advanced cardiac safety biomarker development and automated QT analysis, announced that it has executed a master services agreement with a top 10 pharmaceutical company covering both iCardiac's Highly Automated QT as well as Dynamic QTbtb solutions for Phase I and Thorough QT (TQT) studies.
"We are enthusiastic about our continued progress in delivering the next generation of advanced methods for evaluating pharmaceutical cardiac safety," said Sasha Latypova, Executive Vice President. "Our technology and service solution is meeting a critical need for pharmaceutical developers to both increase precision of early clinical cardiac safety studies as well as minimize the current unacceptably high rate of false-positive QTc findings which can lead to unnecessary termination of promising new medicines in development."
